Blessed Are The Poor

James 1:9 New Living Translation (NLT)

9 Believers who are poor have something to boast about, for God has honored them.

Jesus Respects the poor, for the wealthy give of money for love and entertainment waiting what money they have on the things that are not of God but of the world and when they do they still have more to be able to give. However the poor have mearly nothing and still give in they’re honor unto the Lord and God give them praise. Mark 12:41-44 tells the story of just that a poor woman (widow) who gave all she had.

Mark 12:41-44 New Living Translation (NLT)

The Widow’s Offering

41 Jesus sat down near the collection box in the Temple and watched as the crowds dropped in their money. Many rich people put in large amounts. 42 Then a poor widow came and dropped in two small coins.[a]

43 Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has given more than all the others who are making contributions. 44 For they gave a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she had to live on.”

You see in the world and entertainment of the ungodly the rich tend to be wealthy yes. However they also tend to boast about it and think because they are wealthy they have everything and look down upon those who are less wealthy in dismay and disrespect. God honors the poor and show’s disappointment to the wealthy. For they live of their money many times and not in God’s glory thanking him for the wrath they have which God did make possible for them. For you see the rich believe they have everything when in reality their faith is weak and their thinking is altered and they waist what they could do good in honor of God with. They tend to think they are all most important and forget God in the forefront of their mind. Without God’s Grace and honor they are looked down on by God and have nothing. When the poor sleeping with nothing and tend to use that as their tool for drawing closer to God requesting any and all help they can gain from their trust in God and when they give they earn God’s honor and respect. For you see they draw closer to him and they’ve given what small gifts they can give many a time leaving them in debt of what they already didn’t have and this honoring God in trust that he will provide giving them what they need in exchange for all that they had to honor Him with and in turn being more wealthy than the wealthy for they live by the spirit in God’s honor than in the joy of the money and entertainment. So to God he gives them honor as they have nothing and leave what they have making them have even less and in this they truly have everything because they have trust in faith and God having the best honorable gift of the world not of that of the worldly. In this the poor may boast for they have reasons to boast about this and tell others of the glory and good work and honor God has shown them. They have the voice to tell of God’s stories and spread the word. The rich just gave there share and went on with life much of the time not thanking God or remembering God and acknowledging I’m in any way for they are more proud over their own earnings to see the faith and true honor in the earnings God gives. God shows honor on the poor for what little they may give when he knows that the wealthy have so much but only gift small amounts usually in greed when he knows they can honor him with a lot more for they have more than that’s poor person but they won’t.
